complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
up nothing and he's not considered a suspect at this point. yesterday, president obama was direct in his characterization of the bombings. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. we also know this. the american people refuse to be terrorized because what the world saw yesterday in the aftermath of the explosions were stories of heroism and kindness and generosity and love. exhausted runners who kept reasoning to the nearest hospital to give blood and some stayed to tend to the wounded and turning off their clothes to make tourniquets and the men and women who are still treating the wounded at some of the best hospitals in the world. so if you want to know who we are, what america is, how we respond to evil, that's it. selflessly, compassionately, unaffirmative. >> the death toll stands at three. more than 170 people injured. 71 of them still hospitalized and the injuries are -- we are looking at pictures
is the fbi looking at right now? what's most important from your standpoint? >> well, obama met with his security advisers today, and their biggest concern is that it is a foreign threat, that it's not too lone wolfs in the united states that took this under their own, just decided to do it themselves. so what the fbi will be looking at is phone records, e-mail records. they'll be looking at any communications, travel records that had to do with these guys going back and possibly training at a camp in northern africa. the most important thing is the communication records, if they've made phone calls, connecting them to other people that may have been involved in encouraging this act or training them to do this particular act, that's what the fbi's going to be looking for going forward. >> and we don't have anymore information on that right now. we know, though, that the older brother, who is dead, did leave the country for six months. he's been living in america since 2007, but left for six months, and investigators are trying to zero in on whether or not he got terrorism training. are y
ameritrade. >>> here's what's happening. president obama will be traveling to texas later this week where he will attend a memorial service from last week's explosion at a fertilizer plant that left 14 people dead and 200 injured. world health officials say there is no evidence that the new bird flu strain in china is spreading from person to person. the latest figures show 105 people are sick, 21 have died. gas prices are down. up 11 cents per gallon according to the survey. back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." the tsarnaev brothers, still an unfolding puzzle for all of us. what exactly motivated these two brothers? we're learning more every day. one brother in particular, tamerlan, became increasingly radicalized over the last several years. we know now that the russian government expressed concern about him back in 2011. they warned the fbi he was a follower of radical islam. the fbi's investigation never turned up anything significant. tsarnaev traveled to the troubled region of dagestan for six months. it's where his parents live. it's a hub of jihadist recruitment genera
today and is mourning the death of one of its police officers. we can also tell you president obama was briefed overnight. on the series of events by lisa moniker, assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism. again, going back importantly to the details, what we do know about these suspects, which we can tell you from our very own pete williams is that they are in their early 20s, they've been in the u.s. about a year, and they have some military experience. that's all we feel comfortable reporting at this point. so, again, massachusetts institute of technology classes are canceled. the mbta transit service, which serves the greater boston area, including of course a lot of major financial firms is shut down on this friday. markets, though, shrugging it off or i should say not seeing any broad fallout. we're seeing a rally shape up in u.s. futures. we're seeing rallies across global markets. sovereign debt is performing well. here is a look at the latest on the dow, the nasdaq and the s&p. hire is a look, as well, as european markets. u.s. "squawk box" will be picking up th
has actually been on for the last two years -- now remember immediately after president obama became president, the united states took on a stimulus program, an enormous stimulus program of a little over $700 billion and that actually created the start of the rebirth of the american economy, but only lasted for a year, year and half and we undertook at the behest at the request of my republican colleagues an austerity budget over the decades beginning in 2011. we will see nearly $2 trillion reduction in federal expenditures in the 10-year period. that is what austerity is all about. and today, if you were trying to get on an airplane somewhere in the united states, you were beginning to see yet one more effect of austerity. and that is the air traffic controllers going on furlough so that one day out of 10, air traffic controllers will not be working, meaning there will be a shortage. some say they should have moved the money around and did it some other way, but that's not the way the austerity program is in the united states and not the way the sequestration law is written. sequest
